An Artist's Story with Charmaine McKissock
Mondays at 10am , repeated on Saturday at 2pm
Colne Radio is delighted to announce a new series of interviews with Charmaine McKissock called ' An Artist's Story'.
The interviews focus on the artistic biographies of 8 artists who all practise locally. The artists found it unusual, but beneficial, to reflect on some of the larger issues touched on in the questions, such as the purpose of their art, the role of support networks, and the difficulty of marketing their work.
Colne Radio is proud to announce the second programme in a new series of interviews with Charmaine McKissock, called ' An Artist's Story'.
An Extraordinary Cartoonist
Colne Radio is delighted to air an interview with extraordinary young Colchester illustrator and cartoonist Colin McAllister. This interview is part of the ‘Artist's Story’ series presented by Charmaine McKissock.
Colin first studied Computer Animation, but decided to give up on the rat race and shifting nature of contemporary technology. He fell into drawing during all the spare time he had after his day job: his contemporary cartoons are highly textured both in lines and subject matter and he has a fondness for the wow factor, with warping perspectives and an epic amount of stuff depicted on one piece of paper, in black and white Indian ink.
Otherwise Colin sketches scenes with an interesting bit of history to them, exactly as they look to him. He does commissions, regularly exhibits and tries to complete a SNUBLiC Drawing once a month ('snublic' being the artists own synonym, website address and none sense word). See more at www.snublic.com.
You can listen to the programme is broadcast on the 27th July at 10AM and repeated 1st August at 2PM.
